Andrew Gould

Always a threat to take one to the house, Barkley secured his fourth straight 100-yard rushing outing with a 78-yard touchdown against Washington, which hasn't allowed as many rushing yards in six separate games. His seven-game streak to drawing 20 touches only snapped (18) because the Giants took their foot off the accelerator after gaining an insurmountable 40-0 lead. He may receive closer to 30 touches against the Titans with Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) missing another game. The transcendent rookie is an easy top-five choice despite his opponent yielding the fourth-fewest fantasy points (14.8 per game) to running backs.McCaffrey has eclipsed 100 total yards in six straight games, depositing 21.5 touches per game and 10 touchdowns in the process. While the Saints have surrendered an NFL-low 77.6 rushing yards per contest, they have also permitted averages of 5.4 catches for 41.5 yards to opposing running backs. Yet to miss a single offensive play since Week 9, McCaffrey maintains too high a floor to worry despite the tough matchup. DFS players, on the other hand, should avoid paying a premium price.

Titans second best vs opposing RBs in Fantasy, but Barkley may be best in league right nowSaints 4th best vs RBs Fantasy wise, but McCaffrey's versatility keeps him matchup proof here
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Barkley is the leading fantasy running back over the last 4 weeks and he should continue to have RB1 value, even against a tough Titans D. The Saints allow the 3rd fewest points to fantasy running backs, but McCafrrey has been the second highest scoring fantasy running back over the last month. McCaffrey is a matchup proof RB1.
